After recovering from some serious computer problems I find myself with very little time to post music. In addition, the stats are virtually zero which is a real kick in the... teeth. No worries, I have a little time today and a request for En Vogue, Heavy D and Ce Ce Rogers. Hmmm, dissapointing again coz I do not have Thick Girlz or the 12" release of You Don't Have To Worry, only the Frankie Knuckles Mix on this Remix CDS. On a positive note (thank gawd for that) this is a great collection of mixes.
OK, so Cindy Herron, Terry Ellis, Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson were rounded up by producers Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy when they decided to put a girl group together. In 1990 En Vogue hit the UK with Hold On and it was a slam dunk. Clearly, the girls image was classy eye candy but damn, these girls could sing too. Their debut album Born To Sing was a reasonable effort but the single releases that followed in 1991 were even more impressive. Leading up to the excellent 1992 Funky Divas album, this single collected a handful of remixes together.
The main track is a Curtis Mayfield classic. En Vogue pulled off a great coup made Giving Him Something He Can Feel their own. It is a somewhat slinky but stunning rendition and should be on every genuine soul lovers ipod. Hold On is here with a great remix from Marley Marl. The Hyperradio Remix of My Lovin' is THE mix for me, bringing out the best in this track. More fizz that a can of Dr Pepper. Last but not least, Frankie Knuckles provides a Def Mix of You Don't Have To Worry. All in all, I fine collection but I have added Kevin's Jazz Mix of Give It Up, Turn It Loose because it's a cracking mix by Kevin Dean and I haven't got the rest of the 12" to post. Enjoy!
